+ Join us for Vienna Scanathon at the Austrian Academy of Sciences

Digitising historical documents? There’s an app for that!

Join us in Vienna for our next Scanathon event, hosted by the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities.

Participants will have the opportunity to test out the DocScan mobile app and the ScanTent device, new tools which facilitate the digitisation of historical documents with a mobile phone.

The event will take place on the afternoon of Wednesday 7 November.  Attendance is free and open to all – but registration is required:

The Scanathon could be an ideal pre-conference activity for anyone attending the 2018 Transkribus User Conference, also in Vienna.

We ask that attendees bring their smartphone to the event so they can work with the tools. The DocScan app is currently only available on Android phones.

Participants are also invited to bring their own documents to digitise during the event.

DocScan and the ScanTent are being developed by one of the READ project partners, the Computer Vision Lab at the Technical University of Vienna.
